- Wireless systems and applications main specialization
- Optical networks secondary specialization
- Physical protection of IT systems secondary specialization
Infocommunications encompasses converged telecommunications and computer networks, the services they can provide and the applications they can support - voice, data, image, video, multimedia and complex information society applications. The technologies for these networks, services and applications are the pillars of the network-based information society. Hungary has a significant research and development background in infocommunications systems, with a number of domestic and multinational service providers and manufacturers with R&D departments in the country, designing products for the global market. As a result, students graduating from the Infocommunication Systems specialisation have a wide range of job opportunities not only in these service providers and manufacturers, but also in small and medium-sized enterprises operating infocommunication systems in the e-economy and government, as well as in value-added services.
Skills to be acquired:
- Fixed, fixed and mobile wireless networks, real-time transmission over IP-based networks.
- Digital switching centres, quality assurance of network applications.
- High frequency systems architecture, characterisation methods, system element description, design and implementation technologies.
- Audio, video and motion picture systems, studio engineering, broadcasting.
- Fixed and mobile wireless access network technologies, network design, methods to ensure quality and real-time transmission.
Wireless communications is one of the most dynamically developing fields of today. Its main research direction is the integration of terrestrial and satellite mobile communication and broadcasting systems with the Internet. In addition to cellular mobile systems, cooperative and self-organising networks (SON) are extending services beyond voice communications to provide high-speed data communications, mobile Internet and inter-device communications (IoT). The implementation of broadband communications requires the most efficient use of the available spectrum spectrum through cognitive, cooperative and software-defined radio (SDR) solutions. The significant number of radio solutions for wireless local area networks has also become an essential enabler for mobile computing. To develop efficient applications for these networks, it is important to understand the physical layer of the system.
Skills to be acquired:
- Application-level knowledge of the physical and network layers and operational issues of mobile and fixed wireless systems.
- Optimal design and operation of wireless communication, broadcasting and remote sensing systems.
- High frequency electronics of wireless systems, wave propagation issues, antennas.
- Services and applications for wireless systems.
Today, it is unthinkable to implement modern communications without the use of optical transmission. Behind today's high-speed communication systems (broadband internet, mobile telecommunications, 5G, digital content delivery, etc.) there is always some form of optical network. For all these reasons, it is useful and important for all electrical engineers to have a device- and system-level knowledge of transmission networks using light. The objective of this specialisation is to provide knowledge and understanding of modern light transmission devices and systems
and networks at application level.
Skills to be acquired:
- Application-level knowledge of the operational and design issues of modern optical telecommunication devices and systems.
- Design tasks for the physical layer of optical networks.
- Proficiency in optical measurement techniques in laboratory work.
- Knowledge of simulation capabilities of optical telecommunication devices and systems.
- Modern communication solutions.
The aim of this secondary specialization is to train computer engineering students who are familiar with the security requirements of information systems hardware devices and the main physical phenomena that cause data corruption and loss. The system of protection against accidental (natural or external) and deliberate (artificial) effects that cause latent damage and corruption, hardware requirements and measurements to verify the effectiveness of protection.
